  • Patent number: 10255160
    Abstract: Traditionally, setting a data breakpoint in a debugger for an execution environment that uses compacting garbage collection is ineffective as a compacting garbage collector moves data around in memory as part of its compaction process. Traditional debugging approaches such as tracing each insertion, etc. are impractical because of the quantity of operations encountered in a typical program. Described herein is a data breakpoint for a compacting garbage collection environment in which data breakpoints are disabled while the garbage collector is running, creating notifications for move operations, batching the notifications, retargeting data breakpoints and using the batched notifications to re-enable the disabled breakpoints.

  • Patent number: 10162717
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for synchronizing a disaster-recovery system of a database. A processor identifies transactions that affect data blocks of a database and records each change in a vector form. For each block, the processor determines a more efficient way to communicate changes made to the block by a subset of the identified transactions. If fewer resources are needed to communicate an updated image of the entire changed block than would be needed to instead communicate a related set of change vectors that identify changes made to the block by the subset of transactions, then the processor communicates the updated image to the disaster-recovery system. Otherwise, the processor instead communicates the related change vectors to the disaster-recovery system. The processor repeats these determinations and communications for each block of the database that was changed by an identified transaction.

  • Patent number: 10114674
    Abstract: Techniques are described for assigning collections of records to parallel processing tasks for sorting index keys of the records. In one example, a method includes determining an order of the collections of records in a descending order by byte length of an index key of each of the collections of records. The method further includes modifying the order of the collections of records in a descending order, for collections of records with index keys of equal byte length, by number of records per collection of each of the collections of records with index keys of same byte length. The method further includes assigning the collections of records to a plurality of parallel processing tasks in the order of the collections of records. The method may combine low elapsed processing times by balancing the amount of work in each assigned processing task with reduced computing resource overhead for each processing task.

  • Patent number: 10115146
    Abstract: Implementations include systems and methods for scoring candidates for set recommendation problems. An example method includes repeating, for each code in code arrays for items in a set of items, determining a most common value for the code. In some implementations, the method includes determining that the most common value occurs with a frequency that meets an occurrence threshold and adding the code and the most common value to set-inclusion criteria. In other implementations, the method includes determining a value for the code from a code array for a seed item and adding the code and the most common value to set-inclusion criteria when the value for the code from the code array for the seed item matches the most common value. The method may also include evaluating a similarity with a candidate item based on the set-inclusion criteria and basing a recommendation regarding the candidate item on the similarity.

  • Patent number: 10114922
    Abstract: Identification of inheritance-by-descent haplotype matches between individuals is described. A set of tables including word match, haplotypes and segment match tables are populated. DNA samples are received and stored. A word identification module extracts haplotype values from each sample. The word match table is indexed according to the unique combination of position and haplotype. Each column represents a different sample, and each cell indicates whether that sample includes that haplotype at that position. The haplotypes table includes the raw haplotype data for each sample. The segment match table is indexed by sample identifier, and columns represent other samples. Each cell is populated to indicate for each identified sample pair which position range(s) include matching haplotypes for both samples. The tables are persistently stored in databases of the matching system. As new sample data is received, each table is updated to include the newly received samples, and additional matching takes place.
